Important Message from the Sisters of Charity of St. Joan Antida

Dear Alumnae, Family, and Friends of St. Joan Antida High School,

It is with a sadness beyond words that I inform you of the death of another of our beloved Sisters of Charity of St. Joan Antida, Sr. Monica Fumo. She was 78 years old and died due to the COVID-19 virus. Sister was a teacher, administrator, cheerleader, good sport, and friend for the young women, staff, administrators, and donors of our high school for years. As with Sr. Gabriella, all possible medical treatments and supportive equipment were given to Sr. Monica to help her battle this insidious virus. A Memorial Mass will be held at a later date.

We ask that you refrain from directly calling or emailing the sisters in order to respect their privacy in this time of grief. Further updates will be posted on the school's website and Facebook page.

Thank you for the outpouring of support, prayers, and concern you have extended to us. The St. Joan Antida High School community is a family for us. It has been a comfort.

We continue to pray for you, our students and staff, healthcare workers, the poor, those affected by the COVID-19 virus, and their families.

May God's love and blessings surround you,

Sister Theresa Rozga, SCSJA and the Sisters of Charity of St. Joan Antida
